Every ancient culture has some mystical explanation for a solar eclipse; some saw it as the wrath of gods, others as the descent of a divine character to the underworld or even the end of the world. Once the black sun materialised, people fled, wolves cried and the world stood still.

Nowadays, it is much simpler than that. The one thing you have to be afraid of is the possible damage to your eyes. Sun shades are advised. On 3 November, Cairo along with other cities across the northern hemisphere, witnessed a partial solar eclipse. The rare solar eclipse swept across parts of Africa, Europe and the United States as the moon blocked the sun either fully or partially, depending on the location.
